Check your gate
There are a few things you can do to ensure your manual gate can become an automated gate. Making a gate automatic will not make the gate overcome problems with a gate that was not installed.
Another way to avoid issues with installing a motor is ensure that the gate doesn’t open uphill. Keeping the gate balanced helps with the automation. if it is uphill the opener will struggle more and can cause issues in the future.
Acceptable to standards
When having the installation ensure that the equipment chosen is suitable and meets the specifications laid out by the manufacturer. If you don’t follow the specifications you will lose your guarantee..
If you have an underground motor installed make sure that it has proper drainage. This will help to ensure that the motor is not flooded if there is rain or snow. They will function with slight water but you will want to avoid serious water damage from the main electrical components.
